Baghdad Animal Rescue

2010 is upon us so i would like to wish you all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.

Baghdad Animal Rescue has gone from strength to strength in 2009 and we have saved more animals this year than ever before and we wish to continue to increase the amount of animals we save and with your help we can do it.

2009 has had it highs and its lows, I guess the high point of the year was pulling off the rescue of Sandbag, Dirtbag, Hesco and Royal, this was the one rescue everyone thought would not happen!  The Government was not prepared to help the soldiers get these animals home so Emma Simpson, a Field Officer of SWHP drafted us in to help her get them home and we did it despite the mountain of problems we faced in the process.  The low point this year has been the death of Taji the kitten just a few days ago, he was so close to getting home to the US but for reasons unknown it was his time to go.  RIP Taji and our deepest condolences to William, his owner.

As well as working alongside Emma to get Sandbag and the gang home, BAR has also worked closely with Nowzad Dogs and Operation Baghdad Pups this year to enable even more cats and dogs to be saved.  We will continue to work together in 2010 and hopefully achieve even greater things than we have in 2009!!

An update has been released on the website today detailing new rescues and a few other bits and bobs so please do visit and support us by passing the link to the website to everyone you know.

Facebook has proven an invaluable asset this year, it has enabled us to really get the word out about the plight of these animals and has been instrumental in helping us raising funds so we can continue, so please link to us on your FB pages.

It is now time for me to sign off for 2009 and welcome you all into 2010,  HAPPY NEW YEAR and thank you for all your support.
